HSV-Alpha Color Picker for Android

This library implements a color picker and a color preference for use in Android applications. Portrait Landscape Preferences

Features

I couldn't find this combination of features in an existing library, which is why I wrote this one:
  • Alpha slider.
  • Text field to copy and paste hex color values.
  • Old and new colors displayed side by side.
  • Optional selection of "no color".
  • Proper behavior when orientation changes.
  • Up-to-date design.
In addition, the Hue-Saturation picker...
  • gives higher hue precision than a square picker of the same size.
  • allows easier selection of pure white than a circular picker.

Demo App

A demo is available on the Play Store. Source code for the app is in the demo_app folder in this repo.

Using the Library

Add the library dependency to your app module's build.gradle:
    dependencies {
compile 'com.rarepebble:colorpicker:2.2.0'
}
Add jcenter() to your repository list if it isn't there already.

ColorPreference Usage

Add the ColorPreference to your preference screen xml. Don't forget the extra xmlns: declaration if using the custom attributes described below.
    <PreferenceScreen
xmlns:android=""
xmlns:app="">
<com.rarepebble.colorpicker.ColorPreference
android:key="simplePreference"
android:title="@string/pref_title"
android:defaultValue="#f00"
/>
</PreferenceScreen>

XML Preference Attributes

The standard preference attributes apply as normal, including defaultValue, which can be a hex color, as in the example above, or a reference to a color defined elsewhere. In addition, the following custom attributes may be used. They should be prefixed with the namespace used for res-auto, as in the example below.

colorpicker_selectNoneButtonText

If set, this text will appear on a third button on the color picker dialog. This resets the color setting to the defaultValue if set. If there is no defaultValue, any saved color setting is removed. Apps can use this to implement "no color selected" logic. Use SharedPreference.contains("myOptionalColorKey") to test for that.

colorpicker_noneSelectedSummaryText

This text displays as the preference summary text if no color has been selected.

colorpicker_showAlpha

Set this to false to hide the alpha slider.

colorpicker_showHex

Set this to false to hide the hex value field.

colorpicker_showPreview

Set this to false to hide the color preview field. Note: colorpicker_defaultColor was removed in version 2, in favour of android:defaultValue. If upgrading, just switch to using android:defaultValue instead.
    <PreferenceScreen
xmlns:android=""
xmlns:app="">
<com.rarepebble.colorpicker.ColorPreference
android:key="myOptionalColor"
android:title="@string/pref_optional_color"
app:colorpicker_selectNoneButtonText="@string/no_color"
app:colorpicker_noneSelectedSummaryText="@string/no_color_selected"
/>
</PreferenceScreen>
There are further examples in the demo app.

ColorPickerView Usage

In many cases, the ColorPreference will be all that's needed, but if you wish to use the ColorPickerView directly, it can be constructed like any other view, either in code or in XML. Set the initial color with setColor() and retrieve the view's current color with getColor():
    final ColorPickerView picker = new ColorPickerView(getContext());
picker.setColor(0xff12345);
...
final int color = picker.getColor();
Refer to the ColorPreference source for a fuller example.

XML View Attributes

The custom attributes above should be prefixed with the namespace used for res-auto, just like the preference attributes. See the view demo source for an example.

colorpicker_showAlpha

Set to false to hide the alpha slider. (Default is visible.)

colorpicker_showHex

Set to false to hide the hex value field. (Default is visible.)

colorpicker_showPreview
